Furniture Loan

Furniture Loan Policy

  • The University may provide furniture "on loan" to AUB personnel occupying on or off campus university housing, whose home, at the time of appointment, is not in Lebanon.
  • The list of furniture which may be provided on loan is specified in Appendix III. This appendix may be amended from time to time by the university administration.
  • The University shall not be responsible for the provision of any furniture, appliances, or fixtures other than as specified in Appendix III.
  • AUB personnel shall sign a detailed furniture and appliance inventory and will be held responsible for the cost of any replacement or damage except in that which is attributable to fair wear and tear.
  • AUB personnel shall allow and facilitate the University's inspection of the premises and any loaned furniture in order to ensure compliance with these rules and regulations and to determine what repairs are necessary and the costs to be borne by AUB personnel. AUB personnel shall accept the results of any such inspection.

Furniture Schedule

  • On-Campus Housing
  • On-campus housing is furnished by the University in accordance with a schedule that takes into account the size and location of the apartment. All apartments are equipped with a refrigerator, a stove, basic living room and dining room furniture, and bedroom furniture equivalent to the number of bedrooms in each apartment. The housing department will, on request, provide prospective occupants with a floor plan of the apartment and a furniture schedule. The University does not provide floor coverings, lamps, small appliances, kitchenware, or other household items.
  • AUB personnel who do not wish to have furniture provided or who wish to return certain items should contact the housing department. Generally, all items are treated as sets (e.g., 3 piece sectional settee) which may not be split.
  • AUB personnel who require additional furniture (e.g., additional bed due to an increase in family size) should contact the housing department. Additional items may be provided subject to availability and at the discretion of the housing department. 
  • Off-Campus Housing
  • The University may, at its sole discretion, provide furniture on a loan basis to AUB personnel occupying off-campus apartments.
  • Furniture provided on a loan basis (this list may be amended from time to time by the university administration. Please refer to the table below).
  • Household Help
  • The  University  does  not  provide  furniture  for  household  help  either  on  or  off-campus housing. 
  • Standardization
  • The University has adopted a policy of standardization of furniture. Non-standard items (e.g., specially modified beds or baby cribs) are not provided.
